Just this Tuesday, Instagram release a ton of updates that will excite users. It features a set of stickers, which includes holiday-themed ones, a hands-free mode for videos, multiple text fields and also now you can save "stories", according to Ad Week. There are certain occasions where sending simple holiday greetings is does not seem. You can now send snowman, gingerbread man and even candy canes to your messages. The new Instagram holiday update also includes a candy cane brush.

The new update also features contextual stickers that let you add time, weather and location to your post, according to CNET. Some users pointed out that this feature is quite reminiscent of Snapchat's version but it is still a welcome change to Instagram users. 

This option can be accessed by clicking the smiley face button located in the top-right-hand corner of your camera screen. By tapping the stickers, users can gain access to different styles and feature to allow them to customize their post. 

With the hands-free mode, users can now record with just one tap of the button instead of pressing and holding the button. The Facebook-owned photo- and the video-sharing network give this much-needed video taking boost for people who want to take videos of themselves without the need to continuously pressing down the record button. 

In the latest Instagram update, users can now save Instagram stories. This feature was released last month but now they added an option where users have the ability to save Instagram stories that they like. This is definitely something that will excite Instagram users down the road.
